Hans Jean Arp
challenges and difficulties
Arp fears of becoming emotionally dependent upon others, and may distance himself or deny his needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that he will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Hans Arp may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Hans.
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Hans Arp understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Hans Arp is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
Hans Arp has a tendency to think on the dark side, is somewhat gloomy and touchy and easily disappointed. He may find it hard to keeps his attention on the real world and could become obsessed with strange ideas and fanciful beliefs.
Not very adaptable, Hans Arp tends to be rebellious and fight hard against oppression. This could even lead to violent incidents, so Hans should try to keep his temper under control. He may have to work extremely hard and may have a lot of responsibilities that he cannot let go.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Hans Arp instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Hans Arp needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Hans Arp copes with stress. Hans Arp also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Hans Arp to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is deep within himself, as Hans Arp faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Hans Arp keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
The following are specific activities that will support Hans Arp in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Arp, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.

Arp needs to become involved in sharing and exchanging information with others and in developing his intellectual reasoning ability. Hans Arp should practice using his mind, his thinking skills and his ability to be objective. "Work smarter, not harder" might be a motto for him.
